TODAYS DISCOVERY – Hyaena Fierling

Hyaena Fierling

Develops work in the field of sound action since 1999 as composer and investigator in the field of sound structuring; dedicates herself to experimental/improvised music since 1996.

Her work is based on improvisation and exploration, involving the capture of sounds and soundscapes (field work) as well as programming and editing (based on the canons of film sound) of sound sequences originated from unorthodox sound sources – wood and metal objects, stones, different instruments (prepared bass guitar, Hexluth – electrified luth, Moog and Micro Korg synths) or the exploration of sound possibilities in spaces with uncanny acoustic characteristics – the same sound sequences at a later time edited and sequence according to soundtrack assemblage composition, breaking the borders of experimental sound and music in cinematic space.

REVIEW REBLOG – Hyaena Fierling & Comrades – Emissaries

Strange ethereal wonder this and thanks to this review, Hyaena Fierling is Todays Discovery.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artists: Hyaena Fierling & Comrades
title: Emissaries
keywords: experimental, soundscape, sound art, poetry, sound poetry, electroacoustic,
label: suRRism-Phonoethics

Hyaena Fierling’s ‘madrigal for sugar dogs’ begins with an atmospheric soundscape that comes across warm and mysterious. It feels natural and yet unnatural at the same time; something human made with the moving sounds similar to a damp propellor from a helicopter and rare daft firework explosions in the deep backdrop. Then voices appear as if they are sirens of first aid ambulances making their noises in the warm atmospheric surreal darkness. Somehow these sirens are not the sounds of an emergency response as they seemingly come across as if they actually quite enjoy themselves.

With ‘Sunrise in Utopia’ Hyaena Fierling gets joined by MUTATE to deliver a fierce and yet roaming track of warrior-like awakening. It’s as if the grainy color on the artwork is being penetrated by glorious hand drumming…

REVIEW REBLOG – Eli Gras (a amazing multidisciplinary artist, performer, inventor,entertainer, musician…)

The creativity and pure inventiveness of Eli Gras :)) An artist well worth watching all the videos and checking out more. Courtesy to Yeah I Know it Sucks for this overview.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Eli Gras is a multidisciplinary artist active in lots of creative fields, but mostly known for her excellent career in experimental underground music since the early eighties. Her experimentations have covered all kinds of musical paths, from pure experimentalism to electropop, minimalism, funk, and so much more. What is striking to me from this artist is that she invents her own instruments, which of course brings a completely new and unique sound perspective to the ears and minds.

There are lots of videos of her live performances playing her inventions, which of course is an exciting thing to see and hear on the digital highway; but its even better and more exciting when you can hear and see her performing live in front of you. In a couple of days (upcoming Saturday 14th November) she will be doing her magical thing on the experimental cozy toxic grounds of Gifgrond.

REVIEW REBLOG – Notes On… ‘Art Angels’ by Grimes

Here is review number two courtesy of Notes on Sounds…

Grimes_-_Art_AngelsWhen you get bored of me I’ll be back on the shelf” sings Claire Boucher on one of her poppiest and catchiest tunes to date, ‘California.’ Luckily for her, Grimes isn’t likely to be put on to the shelf anytime soon. Her fourth LP Art Angels has been three years in the making, and halfway through that process she claimed to have thrown out a whole album’s worth of material for it not being good enough. More recently, she said that she found her older works “embarrassing.” Apparently she found listening to the likes of ‘Oblivion’ cringe worthy.

That must have left fans of Boucher’s a bit worried. Her last, breakthrough album Visions was a sometimes abrasive but often intelligent dive into harsher electronic, analogue territory, moving on from the double-whammy of synth-experiments Halfaxa and Geidi Primes in 2010 and her collaborative LP with d’Eon, Darkbloom.

REVIEW REBLOG – Notes On… ‘Clean’ By The Japanese House

A couple of electro pop artist reviews today courtesy of Notes on Sound – a new site promoting primarily but not wholly new and undiscovered indie artists. Found a couple of posts that I can happily share here.

japanese house cleanIn March, a mysterious figure called The Japanese Housereleased their first-ever track, ‘Still.’ It was a minimal, moody piece of work from a person who clearly loved using vocoders and enjoyed experimenting with auto-tune (in a good way). At the time it was quite difficult to garner any information about the shadowy figure behind the project, yet the track still got one of its first major plays on one of Zane Lowe’s last Radio 1 shows. It soon emerged that The Japanese House was the project of 20-year-old Londoner Amber Bain, and on her debut EP Pools To Bathe In, released in April, she’d made a short collection of tunes that were atmospheric, emotional and touched on a wide range of genres.

Her latest effort, Clean, might come just a few months after her debut but it shows that Bain is far from being short on ideas…
